. this is the aftermath of that attack. on september 14, the bodies of chris stevens and two others were returned home. their coffins were met at andrews air force base and that is where we pick up the story of tyrone woods father. he was there as well. he recounted to the president and secretary of state. here is part of his interview. >> when he came over to our little area, you know, i could tell that he just mumbled that he was sorry. his face was looking at me. his eyes were looking over my shoulder like you could not look me in the eye. it was not a sincere i am really sorry that your son died. he was totally insincere with the i'm sorry. it was like shaking hands with a dead fish. you know, it just didn't feel right. now it is coming out but apparently the white house situation room was watching our people die as this was happening. when i heard that this morning, this is something i was really upset with. i hope that the country does not forget this. hillary came over and she did the same thing. she separately came over and i gave her a hug and shook her hand. she did not appear to be one bit
-ahead to go back over to the embassy that perhaps they could have gotten ambassador stevens out alive. i'm not happy to say that, but i'm very dissatisfied with what happened in washington, the top leadership of this country. our military and our agents and our people out there deserve better. megyn: captain nash, you have to look at this in the greater context. these guys in libya, they knew they didn't have adequate security and they were requesting more from washington. they were requesting just to keep what they had and they were told no. the security was being reduced steadily. the british ambassador had an attempt made on his life. the brits shut down that their consulate. the red cross pulled out of libya. our ambassador in his diary was documenting his fears, he believed he was upon an al qaeda hit list. while the navy seals are begging for permission to save him, the permission was denied. how does that happen? >> that scenario i just laid out, megyn, just screams malfeasance. we spend a tremendous amount of money on our intelligence community and military. we have all the tools
a mile away asked for permission to help ambassador chris stevens there and they were told to stand down twice. they ignored those orders and they went anyway by the time they got there the compound was under fire. it was on fire, as well. they evacuated those who remained. they went back to the annex. they then requested military back-up. they were denied. hours later when it was all over former navy seals woods and glen doherty and sean smith and chris stevens all were dead. the president was asked about all of this. molly henneberg is live in washington with that part of the story. >> molly: he was asked twice about it. three pleas for help being denied as the embassy was under attack. he didn't answer directly but did say his administration is trying to find out what happened that day and also track down the people who carried out the attack. >> nobody wants to find out more what happened than i do. we wanted to to make sure we get it right. particularly i have made commitment to the families as well as the american people. we're going to bring those folks to justice. we'll gather fa
before the terrorist attack in benghazi on september 11th that killed u.s. ambassador chris stevens and three other americans. congressman jason chaffetz chairs the house subcommittee on national security and has returned from a fact-finding mission in benghazi. thank you, congressman, very good to see you. first, i wanted to share something with you because governor romney just at a campaign appearance in iowa shared a story of having met one of the navy s.e.a.l.s., since he refers to it to him as a massachusetts resident, massachusetts native, we think that he's talking about glen doherty, let me play them. >> one of them was a guy from my home state of massachusetts and relatively young guy compared to me and he was a former navy s.e.a.l. living in san diego and learned about him, talked about his life, he skied a lot, in some of the places i had and we had a lot of things in common, he told me that he keeps going back to the middle east, he cares very deeply about the people there. he served in the military there. went back from time to time to offer security services and so for
about the incident that killed stevens. >>> coming up at 4:42 we will have a live report from bill. >>> chances for another bay bridge are still alive. well sends it here, the oakland a's will live another day. >> they rallied and beat them 4- 3 last night and as tradition, the fun loving aides congratulated the cocoa critp. >> maybe i never loved you. an amounts fans -- a's fans hope to cheer them to victory and way done, there it goes, angle pay again. smacked three home runs to win 8-3. out of the lincoln they truck out six hitters, it trust struck out this morning pacific time. i think people might be feeling sick this morning. >> i can feel it now. i better get home. >>> good morning everybody. let's go out and take a look at the commute. traffic is moving well on 80 westbound and 5 -- 580 is there and should be gone pie 5:00. also westbound -- gone by fiv knife. 43 -- 5:00. 437, let's go to steve. >>> for others it was a warm sunny day and we are looking at it and noticing those clouds look interesting. from the sierra valley, we gave some thunder and lightning, most of it
by steven dennis, who covers the white house for roll call newspaper and josh rogin, a staff writer with foreign policy magazine and the author of the cable blog. how did we get to this path? the president said it was really congress that did this and some people said no the white house had a role. how did we get to this. >> a lot of folks were shaking their heads wondering what he was saying because the reality is the president was involved. he helped craft this deal. this sequestration is really a symptom of washington's failure to get a budget deal. for 18 months the two sides have been squaring off and the the democrats are off in their corner saying we need to raise taxes on the wealthy. the republicans are saying we have to have a cuts-only plan. when they cut this deal a year-and-a-half ago, it was designed to bring the two parties together, to make it so onerous that both sides had to come... >> ifill: nobody thought it would ever be real. >> yeah. i think that basically the idea was the super committee was going to take a crack at coming up with an alternative. they failed.
at the memorial for ambassador stevens. it was beautiful in a bipartisan way to see people praise the ambassador and talk to the family about the calls they are getting from young people around the country who are inspired to go into public service despite what happened to the ambassador. so i think what we have to do is await mr. pickering's report and then we will really see what the facts are and we can determine what we should have known sooner and what we can do in the future to better protect the american people at home and abroad. >> geraldo: judge jeanine had the family of one of the seals that was slain and the family member, the dad, god, we recognize and honor his loss. he called the president insincere and called hillary clinton a liar and this is ten days before the election. i mean it has to have an impact, does at any time? >> it is very interesting timing, geraldo. i think the administration should have been more forthcoming. i think the president should have been more forthcoming about this. i think it is becoming a real sort of a disaster for the administration. but because of
as it was still under way. united states ambassador christopher stevens and three other americans were killed in the benghazi attacks. turning to syria, the u.n. envoy to syria said the syrian government and some rubble leaders have agreed to a ceasefire. he says that the government of president assad will issue a statement on a truce today or tomorrow. the fighting in syria has killed more than 34,000 people since march of last year. united states navy warship has rescued five filipino fisherman. they were standing on the roof of their sinking vote. united states embassy spokeswoman in manila says the fishing vote started taking on water the previous day. those are some of the latest headlines on c-span radio. >> what he just said is not true. >> briefly, senator, you need to do a better job of explaining your own record. you are really messing up my record. you are looking at somebody else. and it is a shame. senator, the people of the state of florida are tired of you saying one thing to them, and then going back to washington, d.c. and voting with barack obama 98% of the time. they are ti
, that killed u.s. ambassador stevens, and sean smith, glenn doherty and tyrone woods. we don't have a complete list, but we have an information what mr. wood will say. cbs it reporting that he met with ambassador stevens just about every day between february when his mobile security deployment team until august when he left just about a month before the deadly raid which was reportedly about the time his team's mission was over. and wood told cbs that it's unbelievable to him, that his team was pulled out of libya, given the fact that he says he was constantly trying to demonstrate to the state department how dangerous, volatile and unpredictable things were in libya, as for the investigation on the ground, the fbi says they continue to coordinate with the state department, justice department and the defense department it figure out exactly what happened and who was responsible. but remember that the fbi wasn't able to get boots on the ground there for about three weeks after the raid when they'd already left the country. back to you in new york. >> peter doocy, thank you so much for that upda
investigation in to that attack in libya and ambassador stevens killed and three other americans and someone that worked in the state department and knew the ambassador, do you think that the administration dropped the ball? >> the speech today is certainly going to highlight this but the administration is not dropping the ball. they have been coming out with information as they have learned it about the libya attacks and the danger today is con inflation of rhetoric and attacks could paint governor romney in to a position of scare mong mongering. this is a person in 2007 saying he would not go after bin laden if he had actionable intelligence and president obama got bin laden. the lynn yann incident is dangerous and the state department has to take care of the future in terms of its ambassador's safety and security and looking in to it. but to politicize it in such a way and platform could be undermining to that process. >> one area of concern is syria. ambassador ginsburg, i want your take on what governor romney is expected to say, specifically saying in syria, i'll work with the partners
not kill her. it was a gunshot wound to her neck. she works for the winchester star. >>> robert stevens is in hot water after he admitted to cutting down trees overlooking the c&o canal in potomac. he said 25,000 square feet of trees in the merry go round enclave off river road were removed. a lawyer for stevens said he had the woods thinned out because last june's derecho caused so much damage on his property. the executive paid a $1,000 fine and is working with the county to restore the land. >>> it 16:12. another death possibly related to the outbreak of fungal meningitis. >> federal health officials say the problem is only going to get worse from there. 9news now is back in two minutes. >>> good morning. welcome back to 9news now. it's 5:15. what do we talk about first thing in the morning? food. yesterday we marked the 19th anniversary and bacon with cake is really good. >> the cake with strawberries in the middle. >> can we savor your forecast? >> i think we can. maybe not this morning. it's a little damp in spots. we're going to get into s some sunshine a. nice day. we'll keep th
stevens, slain in the attacks, so washington could say libya was becoming more peaceful. investigators say two months before the attacks, the state department concluded the risk to u.s. personnel was high. republican congressman jason chaffetz is just back from tripoli. >> twice in the six-month leadup, you had bombings at our compound in benghazi, and it's 9/11 in libya. what other warnings do you need? >> reporter: there were two assassination attempts against the ambassador in recent months. state department documents obtained by nbc news list 230 separate security interests in libya in 2011 and 2012. according to former resident security officer eric nordstrom, these incidents paint a clear picture that the environment in libya was fragile at best and could degrade quickly. tonight four republican senators led by john mccain are demanding answers from the cia director and other top intelligence officials in what is becoming an explosive campaign issue. the state department denies it rejected requests for more security, but says house republicans cut $300 million from their security bud
zone. mr. woods disobeyed the order and tried to rescue ambassador christopher stevens and other americans. tyrone woods was killed that day. so was the ambassadors, his aid sean smith and glen doherty also a navy seal. today on the radio program president obama said. this i was not personally aware of any requests. obviously we have an infrastructure that's set up to manage requests like that. we're kind to find out what happens. ultimately any time there is a death of an american oversees i want to find out what happened because my most important job as president is keeping the american people safe. >> bill: all right. so once again, mr. obama didn't explain what happened on 9/11 in libya. once again he said his administration is investigating. but so much, so much misinformation has been but the out there by the obama administration you would think that six weeks after the attack some kind of clarity could be put forth by the president he doesn't have to do it because the press is not pushing him. brian williams, one of the few journalists mr. obama is talking with, had a chan
